Descendants Wiki

The Dragon's Eye is a scepter once wielded by Maleficent. After her defeated during King Ben's coronation, it was placed in the Museum of Cultural History where it was once stolen by Audrey to enact her revenge.


Before the formation of Auradon[]

      Further information: Sleeping Beauty
On the day of Princess Aurora's christening, Maleficent used the powers of her staff to curse the infant so that upon pricking her finger on a spinning wheel, she would die, Merryweather then altered the curse so that Aurora would simple fall into a deep slumber.

After seeing Prince Phillip escape from the castle, Maleficent used her staff in order to prevent Phillip from stopping her. Seeing no other way, she used its power to transform into a dragon.

The Isle of the Lost: A Descendants Novel[]

Mal, alongside Jay, Carlos and Evie, ventured on a quest where Mal sought to take the scepter to prove to her mother that she was just equally as evil where upon coming into contact with it, the scepter revived Diablo the raven who returned to his mistress with Mal returning home to her mother without the scepter.


Despite no longer being as powerful as it once was, Maleficent continued to carry her scepter with her during her imprisonment. Once the barrier had briefly been broken during the coronation, Maleficent used the advantage she had and teleported herself to Auradon where she eventually used it to transform into a dragon once more.

Inside the Museum of Cultural History, the statue of Maleficent holds a replica of the scepter.

Descendants 3[]

Wanting revenge, Audrey travels to the museum where she steals both the scepter and The Queen's Crown. She then uses its power to send the people of Auradon to sleep, turn others into stone and turn Mal old. The scepter was eventually taken away from Audrey after her defeat and returned to the museum.



  • Despite the character of Maleficent being based on the animated counterpart from Sleeping Beauty, the staff is closer in design to the one seen in the 2014 live-action film Maleficent.
